Raven Scholars
Empowerment and Education

The Raven Scholar program is a free, donations-based support service for University of Idaho students on the autism spectrum, with an 80% retention rate! Our program provides individualized services such as advocacy, one-on-one skills training, services coordination, case management and intervention for early warning grades or faculty and staff concerns.  

Through Raven Scholars, students foster a sense of community and actively build and nurture social networks by:  

·                  Engaging with returning Raven Scholars and peer-mentors. 

·                  Participating in monthly social events.

·                  Spending time in our welcoming, judgment-free, dedicated space on the Moscow campus. 

·                  Working with staff and interns who deeply understand and value neurodiversity. 

·                  Gaining confidence by being themselves while receiving the support they need. 

WHAT YOUR GIVING ACCOMPLISHES: Your support of Raven Scholars will allow us to continue providing enriching educational and social support for our students, including inviting specialists to do workshops; providing games, sensory tools, interactive activities; and more. We also provide snacks and activities for students to engage in daily.
